Turkey is land of beautiful people and culture. In recent years the country has withstood much political turmoil and unrest due to Kurdish nationalist uprisings, and ISIS attacks. Furthermore conflict in Syria has caused millions of Syrian refugees to resettle in Turkey.
Despite all of this, there is hope!God longs to bring healing and restoration to this land through the gospel of Jesus Christ.
This August, I have been afforded the opportunity to go on a missions trip to Turkey for one month. The purpose of our trip will be to love and share the good news of Jesus Christ with Syrian refugees, Kurds, and Turks in Southeast Turkey. Many have never heard His message and are unaware that the God of the universe weeps alongside them in their suffering, desires to have a personal relationship with them and has already made a way for their spiritual and even physical healing through Jesus. Another focus of the trip will be education. Many refugee children are behind in schooling because of the crisis--my team and I also serve in a new school where we will teach music, dance, English, and the bible.
I humbly invite you to be a part of what God is doing in several ways:
1) Please pray that God will strengthen and unify our teamthat He would use us greatly to bless the beautiful people of Turkey. Also, please pray for the long-term missionaries whose work to encourage and uplift the Kurdish, Syrian, and Turkish people continue even after we leave.
2) If you have any new or lightly used clothing (children and adults) and/or school supplies that you would like to donate to the Syrian refugee families please contact me directly as I am collecting items to bring. 3)
3) Finally, please pray for personal financial provision for the trip. If you would like to donate to assist with airfare, living expenses and, standard ministry fees, you can do so right here on crowdrise!
